Butterfly Basics and Your Perfect Day – Card Class for March

By | March 31, 2015

Hi there

My card class ladies had two special requests for card designs this month – an Easter card and a wedding card.  I don’t have any ‘Easter’ stamps so I went with the flower image from my newly purchased Butterfly Basics set and teamed it up with the words from Crazy about You.  This set has really been my ‘go to’ sentiment set these last couple of months.

The image is stamped on watercolour paper then coloured in using an aqua painter (or blender pen if you prefer).  My trick with using an aqua painter is to put a bit of foam in the barrel – I’ve found this helps the even flow of water to the tip of the brush and you don’t get a puddle on your paper.

I do hope we get the Irresistibly Yours paper (or similar) in our next catalogue – I love it.

Stamp – Butterfly Basics, Crazy about You
Card Stock – Elegant Eggplant, Garden Green, Naturals White, Watercolour Paper
Ink – Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder, Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, Momento Ink
Other – Basic Gray Bakers Twine, Artisan Punch

Now I also didn’t own a wedding set but as my nephew is getting married soon I thought I’d better get one.  After much debate (with myself!) I went with Your Perfect Day.

This is another CASED card – why recreate when somebody else has done a great job!  I saw this card on Pinterest and kept coming back to it – it just caught my eye.  Thank you Sabine for sharing this with us.
Stamp – Your Perfect Day
Card Stock – Sahara Sand, Early Espresso, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler
